"Since last year, I'm working with Red Bull France to organize the French event of the Red Bull Foiling Generation. I wanted to introduce you to the team.
We've currently selected the 24 teams that are directly qualified for the event (this list will be published later), which will be held from the 17th to the 21st of October at La Baule (West Coast of France on the Atlantic Ocean). A Training Camp is scheduled on September 11-13 at La Grande-Motte (South of France on the Mediterranean Sea) to select 8 other teams, to make a 32 teams event.
The organizing sailing club is the famous Yacht Club of La Baule, and the Selection Committee is composed of these renown French sailors:
Thomas Coville (Team Sodebo)
Franck Citeau (Nacra 17 coach for the Olympics)
Sébastien Rogues (GC32 Team Engie)
Gurvan Bontemps (Flying Phantom factory sailor)
Manon Audinet (Nacra 17 top youth sailor)
